GSW/MWB HAS RESTORED 85 TRENCH WATCHES IN THE LAST THREE YEARS
EACH ONE HAS PERFORMED FLAWLESSLY WITH NO WARRANTY WORK
HAVING TO BE ACCOMPLISHED. BUT WHEN YOU ARE DEALING
WITH ANTIQUE WATCHES, ANYTHING CAN OCCUR

THIS BEAUTY WAS SOLD AND THEN DEVELOPED A PROBLEM RUNNING ALMOST IMMEDIATLY
GSW/MWB WARRANTS OUR WATCHES AND HAVE AN EXCELLENT PROGRAM
FOR SITUATIONS JUST LIKE THE ONE WE WILL EXPLORE TODAY

HOW-TO-WARRANTY-REPAIR-A-TRENCH-WATCH-BY-GOLDSMITHWORKS
WHY WE WANT TO INVEST IN A FULL MOVEMENT TO REPAIR A

FAULTY MAIN SPRING AND BARREL
VS INVESTING JUST IN THE PARTS

IMG_4819.JPG (37230 bytes)

AFTER TEARING DOWN THE WATCH AGAIN
WE SET OUT TO FIND THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM

IMG_4808.JPG (36199 bytes)

WE SET UP A COLLECTION DISH FOR PARTS

IMG_4816.JPG (48547 bytes)

WE REALIZED THAT THE NEW MAIN SPRING WAS BINDING IN THE BARREL
THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE ARE NO MAIN SPRINGS TO BE HAD
THAT IS --MAIN SPRINGS FOR TRENCH WATCHES
MOST TRENCH WATCHES REQUIRE ADAPTED CUSTOM MAIN SPRINGS
YOU HAVE TO FIND ONE CLOSE AND CUSTOMIZE IT

IMG_4821.JPG (33263 bytes)

THE PROBLEM WITH THIS TRENCH WATCH BARREL EXPANDING
WAS DUE TO THE NEW MAIN SPRING. THE SPRING WE SELECTED WORKED PERFECTLY
BUT WAS SIMPLY TO STRONG WHICH RESULTED IN A BULGE DEVELOPING FROM AN EXISTING
MICROSCOPIC FLAW IN THE BARREL. PRETTY SIMPLE. ONCE IT EXPANDED JUST A SMALL AMOUNT
THE GEAR/TINES ABOVE  PUSHED AGAINST THE CENTER WHEEL AND IT STOPPED THE WATCH.

IMG_4823.JPG (40286 bytes)

IT TOOK SEVERAL WEEKS & 165.00
TO FIND A NON-RUNNING TRENCH WITH SAME
MOVEMENT FOR THE CORRECT BARREL AS WELL
AS PARTS FOR THE FUTURE IN CASE ADDITIONAL WARRANTY
WORK IS EVER REQUIRED. THE PARTS WILL BE STORED IN THE CASE
IF OUR PATRON REQUIRES WARRANTY WORK IN THE FUTURE
WE WILL HAVE THEM. BUT WE WILL REBUILD THE PARTS
WATCH WITH DAMAGED BARREL --THAT WE REPAIRED --
AND STORE IT COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED. NOTE: THE REPAIR
WOULD NOT HOLD UP OVER TIME. SO IT IS ONLY
TO STORE THE MOVEMENT


IMG_4824.JPG (45004 bytes)


I DECIDED TO BEGIN BY DISASSEMBLING
BOTH WATCHES
PARTS. PARTS. PARTS

IMG_4820.JPG (38346 bytes)

THIS GILDED VERSION IS IDENTICAL IN EVERY WAY
NOTICE THE "AS"MOVEMENT MANUFACTURE HALLMARK

IMG_4814.JPG (54377 bytes)

CLEAN AND READY TO GRAB THE MAIN SPRING BARREL
WE STILL HAVE TO FIND  THE MAIN SPRING

THE MAIN SPRING IS BAD IN THIS

IMG_4825.JPG (46710 bytes)

HERE WE HAVE CHANGED BARRELS OUT,
THE REPAIRED BARREL IN THE RIGHT
ORIGINAL BARREL PLACED IN THE ONE AT LEFT
WE PLACED THE NEW SPRING IN RIGHT
AND A TESTING SPRING IN THE LEFT

IMG_4827.JPG (46213 bytes)

BOTH ARE KEEPING TIME
BUT
IT WILL BE TWO WEEKS BEFORE I RECEIVE CORRECT SPRINGS
CUSTOMIZE THEM
THEN TEST THEM

  IN FACT
OUR COST IS ANOTHER ADDITIONAL 100.00.
THESE SPRINGS ARE 13.00 EACH. WE HAVE TO INVEST IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT MAINS
AND THEN TEST THEM TO GET THE RIGHT ONE

OF COURSE ALL OF THESE COSTS AND LABOR ARE AT NO CHARGE TO OUR PATRON
